Vegas Birthday Dinner

I am going to Vegas this weekend for a "blowout" birthday bash. I have reservations on Saturday at Guy Savoy. I realize this topic has been oft-discussed but I would appreciate some feedback from the Vegas 'hounds. Want to do at least two "spectacular" meals. After perusing the Board I settled on GS and Alex. But, I keep reading about the Trotter places, L'Atelier etc. etc. and am questioning my original call. I'd appreciate the most up-to-date advice you folks are willing to give me. Has anyone been to the new high-end place in the Encore? Should I just stick with my original two?

On another note - Has anyone ever had a problem getting the tasting menu at GS (or any other venue) for just one of two diners> My wife has resigned herself to watching me eat and drink wine as she is not usually up for the whole shebang. I've been to more than one place (not in Vegas) that has refused to serve the tasting menu for less than the entire table. I don't go back to those places. BTW although off topic a bit, my review of La Folie in San Francisco notes this place is the ideal tasting menu. They encourage diners to customize either a 3,4,or 5 course menu and provide the amuse bouche etc. to turn the 5-courser into a 10. Thanks for the help.
